Coral bleaching is destroying reefs around the world. Rising sea temperatures are to blame. Many of the Seychelles' coral reefs have already died. Now the island nation is on a mission to save its marine ecosystem.
In a speech given from a submersible, Seychelles President Daniel Faure has called for stronger protection of the oceans. His island nation is one of many threatened by global warming.
The Australian Climate Council warns that devastating bleaching will mean a "death sentence" for the Great Barrier Reef. The world's largest coral system is home to millions of marine life forms.
Australia’s iconic Great Barrier Reef has endured two years of coral bleaching, with scientists warning of a looming catastrophe for the UNESCO protected site. Is it time to visit before the natural wonder is no more?
Much of Germany's North Sea coast is low enough to put it at risk from the waters at its door. Not least in an era of warming temperatures and predicted sea level rise.
